After paying for an F1 drive with Brabham in 1974, Robarts lost it after three races to the better-funded Rikky von Opel. He later found a seat with Williams, but before Robarts could start a race, the team gave the opportunity to Tom Belsø instead. Robarts later raced in Formula 2 before moving on to other series.
